Breaking Wave by chikadnz

Breaking Wave

Late this morning, John @nzkites and I went for a walk from the Mt Maunganui main beach out onto Moturiki Island. Our plan was to check on two more of our geocaches that needed maintenance and get our photo for the day at the same time.

There were a lot of people out and about even though it was a cool and cloudy day - tourists photographing the view and each other, people fishing, even an emergency rescue team practicing abseiling on the rocky cliffs.

The sea was very calm, but as we walked back to the mainland I saw this lovely gentle wave curling in to the shore, and captured several shots of it.

I've posted two alternative images for the day here:
Lovely capture!

@fbailey @redandwhite @lizochka @ulla @susie1205 @thistle @haskar Thanks for your comments and faves! I usually try to get images of waves when we're at the beach but am rarely happy with the result, so I was very pleased when I saw this one.

It is great watching the breaking waves and trying to capture them.I was doing the same not so long ago. Lovely capture at just the right moment

Does anyone else see a torso and head/figure hanging onto the front of the wave? It reminds me of an artists moveable wooden drawing mannequin...?!?
